to that degree? >> reporter: right. well, they have talked about the president responding to the romney that they said showed up at the debates. the president very aggressive now and all indications are that's the strategy into the next debate as well. one thing we're seeing is that top advisers for the president are also still attacking mitt romney for his performance during that debate. the on the sunday morning shows, a couple of top advisers, david axelrod and robert gibbs calling it him dishonest. one said governor romney has a strange relationship with the truth. >> mitt did a superb acting job. you know, he did everything but learn tap dance. >> he was dishonest when he said he never proposed $5 trillion in tax cuts, that was dishonest. you said on the broadcast to 70 million americans, i will repeal obama care, but i will still be able to cover people with pre-existing conditions. ten minutes after the debate sent he someone into the pressroom to say he really didn't mean that. >> reporter: ed gillespie, cop adviser of the romney campaign, eshlsly accusing the obama campaign of

's vice presidential debate, same old, same old. mitt romney is setting the barlow for his running mate, paul ryan. governor romney sat down for an exclusive interview with our wolf blitzer yesterday. before we talk about that, i want to listen specifically to what the governor had to say about expectations, wolf. here he is. >> are you confident, governor, that paul ryan will take on joe biden thursday night the way you took on the president? >> you know, i don't know how paul will deal with this debate. obviously, the vice president has done, i don't know, 15 or 20 debates during his lifetime. experienced debater. this is, i think, paul's first debate. i may be wrong. he may have done something in high school, i don't know. it will be a new experience for paul. but i'm sure he'll do fine. >> so wolf, here's my question. does anybody at this stage of the game, one week later, think that setting low expectations actually helped mitt romney in his win over president obama, or was it all about performance on that stage? >> there's no doubt that mitt romney did a very good job in the debat
governor romney that. we had the opportunity to talk to obama and senator john mccain in 2008. he told us because of scheduling issues he couldn't sit down with us. but there's a month to the election. >> can you get it out before the election? >> that's why we have the website. >> glamour magazine, it's on the stands now so make sure you take a look. remember, for more political coverage as well with the analysis, you can check out cnn.com/politics. >>> i want to quickly take a look at the stock market and find out what's happeng there. we're down about 94 and some. our christine romans will talk to me later on with regard to your finances, but something even more important, how the stock market is playing a critical role in what you think about the presidential election versus congress and whether you're going to re-elect someone to go back to the hill. we're back in a moment. when you have diabetes... your doctor will say get smart about your weight. i tried weight loss plans... but their shakes aren't always made for people with diabetes. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shake
of this is starting to become some news today. mitt romney in the last couple of days has been talking about former navy s.e.a.l. glen doherty who was killed in -- >> got a little emotional. >> that's right. he got a little emotional yesterday in iowa. he told the story last night, told it again this afternoon, glen doherty died in that consulate attack in benghazi last month. i have to tell you that the mother of that navy s.e.a.l. has asked the romney campaign to stop telling that story. she said in an interview with whdh tv in boston, she doesn't touch romney and she shouldn't make her son's death part of his political agenda. i reached out to andrea saul with the romney campaign and she said that they respect the wishes of mrs. doherty and the campaign confirms to cnn he will no longer be telling that story. so it is interesting to see, you know, mitt romney sort of making some adjustments to his campaign speeches. some of them going over well, some not going over so well, brooke. >> so they will be respecting the mother's wishes to please stop telling the story about her fallen son. jim acosta
and many other viewers out there may be confused on where he stands on this issue. mitt romney, if you listen carefully to what he said, he talks about legislation. well, that's very different as you and i know, brooke, from supporting nominees to the supreme court who would outlaw abortion, who would overturn roe v. wade. that's very different than supporting legislation that would try to do that in congress. and so i think that might be the distinction there that mitt romney is going for. as you mentioned, a few moments ago, he has evolved on this issue over the years and romney has not shied away from that. he admitted back in 2004 that when he was governor of massachusetts that he had had a conversion on this issue. it was when he was basically told about what happened to embryos during stem cell research, that is when he says he had an epiphany on the issue of life and from then on forward he has been pretty staunchly anti-abortion. >> so, let me jump in, because you any, you say distinction, we could call it knnuance, that th nuance on this abortion issue is cropping up as the pr
on mitt romney's changing stance on abortion. plus, the wives are more popular than their husbands. could they help sway voters? we're talking about a sfoer out of florida where a parking garage has collapsed trapping several people. rescue crews are on the scene in florida. we don't know exactly how many people are trapped, but one person has been taken to the hospital. a spokeswoman for miami dade fire and rescue says the parking garage was under construction when it collapsed. they're calling it a pancake collapse because the floors fell on one another from top to bottom. we'll, of course, update you as we get more information there in florida. our affiliates there helping us out. >>> now to a huge affirmative action case. it's a student that claims she was denied admission to the university of text technical because she is white. that student abigail noel fisher, that's her right there, sued the school after being rejected in 2008. fisher says u.t.'s admissions policy unfairly favors minority students. the school says it only considers race in some cases to insure diversity on campus,
't bring his a-game. so it is a little bit surprising that this poll shows obama slightly ahead of romney. >> yeah, at least it makes the contest more interesting and not predictable. so let's talk about tuesday's debate format. our candy crowley, she is going to be great, make that raddatz, we knew was going to be great. how is this going to be different? >> well, it is a town hall format, different than just the usual area, the candidates are speaking directly to the voters themselves. they're having to gauge or maybe you know, modify their answers based on the reaction, right? it is a lot tougher, it presents a lot more opportunities for mistakes. you remember, don, in 1992, president george h.w. bush looking down at his watch in a town hall format debate. it presents a little bit more opportunities to mess up. because the audience right there, you have to react to, as well as the audience at home. so it is a little bit harder to connect. >> yeah, but guess what? who do you remember? the people who are relatable, and not perfect. >> that is true, that is true. >> thank you shannon. >>
talking points can you get into one segment? >> she was pretty good. she was like a politician. >> yeah. well, i will tell you the big difference right now is that you can tell mitt romney is having fun. that's what you saw at the debate. you saw a mitt romney who was enjoying being there and brought his a game and you saw president obama who looked pained, looked like he would rather be having a root canal than being at that debate. and, you know, carol, the thing is, we are now -- before, we could say to a candidate, tell us what you think. today, we are also part of the oprah winfrey, dr. phil generation. we also want to know what they feel, who they are. we want to like them. you know, so i think it is very important that mitt romney is showing more of his personal side. we do know a lot about president obama. that's one of his advantages. you know, we know all about his daughters, his dog, his grandma, his mom, his wife. and i think it's a very good thing that mitt romney is also showing us the real mitt romney. >> except for the dog part. i know that was a low blow. i couldn't hel
